In last week's Arts piece about restaurant design ("Emerging Foodscapes," June 14), the Chronicle erroneously stated that Frank occupies the same building that formerly housed the Bitter End. Our Food editor, Virginia B. Wood, sets the record straight: "The Bitter End was one of Austin's first brewpubs and was located in the 300 block of Colorado, across the street from Mezzaluna and what became Sullivan's Steakhouse. It burned to the ground, and the owner of the building declined to rebuild. The popular Eighties and Nineties restaurant in the 400 block of Colorado where Frank is now was called Gilligan's – owned by Stan Adams (Brick Oven, Siena Ristorante Toscana) with Charles Mayes as the chef."
